All students receive a broad-based training in modern biomedical research through an interdisciplinary
core curriculum that covers the basic knowledge and skills necessary for research in all areas of the biomedical sciences. A program of flexible laboratory rotations allows students to become familiar with
the individual laboratory environment of different faculty before choosing an advisor.

There are currently over eighty faculty from seven departments participating in the graduate program.
Most of our students receive financial support through graduate assistantships which include a generous stipend and a waiver of tuition and fees.
